The Hotel Castillo is open and welcoming tourists worldwide. Testing for COVID-19 is NOT required for travel to Costa Rica. At this time, our sister property the Hotel Amistad remains closed.
In order to travel, tourists must purchase a round trip flight, and meet the following requirements.
- Complete a digital Health Pass on the website of Ministry of Health, prior to travel.
- Unvaccinated travelers must purchase a travel insurance policy that covers accommodation in case of quarantine and medical expenses due to COVID-19 with Sagicor or INS.
As of August 1st, travelers with proof of vaccination are NOT required to purchase travel insurance. For U.S. travelers, the Covid-19 vaccination record card with the CDC logo is acceptable proof.
COVID-19 Testing for Return Flights
As of January 26th, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control is requiring a covid-19 test before returning. At Hotel Castillo we will arrange for the authorized test to be done on site and provide results within 24 hours. The cost is $95 and you should let reception know two days prior to your departure so we can set up a time at the hotel. For our all-inclusive guests who stay four nights or more, we will cover 50% of the cost of this test.
Effective for the month of January, the bar and restaurant is limited to 25 percent capacity and reduced hours.
